About
Nick Lee was hired as the first full time employee of BlueSky Designs in 2006; in 2011, he became a partner. His affiliation with BlueSky Designs began with his Mechanical Engineering senior design project, where he assisted in the creation of a powered mounting arm for people with disabilities.

He drew every single part of the Mount’n Mover, and has gotten quite the schooling—the equivalent of a “graduate degree” in Manufacturing Design—through his work at BlueSky. He wears many hats, from engineer to designer to customer technical support to web design.

Nick is a proud University of Minnesota graduate in Mechanical Engineering with a passion for product design. He previously worked for Visteon Corporation as a manufacturing engineer co-op, refining manufacturing technologies and processes for automotive fuel pumps and delivery modules. He also worked as an undergrad research assistant in the University’s motion control department

The youngest child from a family of architects, Nick has always been interested in making “neat” stuff.

Jack of all trades and master of some, he is not afraid to pick up new skills, tools, or job descriptions.
